Does this eLearning Course use Phonics?
Absolutely not. It is NOT Phonics. Phonics teaches the sounds that letters make, which is very confusing because many letters in the English Language make multiple sounds. Unlike Phonics, NEEPO is 100% consistent and regular, making it easy to read English in order to speak it with correct pronunciation, resulting in little or no accent. Speak English With NEEPO teaches the sounds of English with a corresponding symbol and the combination sounds of English with their corresponding symbol. It DOES NOT teach the sounds that letters make, which is what Phonics does. Phonics does not have the same miraculous effect or results that NEEPO (New English Phonetic Orthography) produces. NEEPO is a totally different methodology than Phonics.
Why is Speak English With NEEPO perfect for Spanish speakers?
English letters have many sounds making it confusing to speak, read, and spell English. Would you like English to have only one letter or symbol for each sound of English and to form words from those letters and sounds so it would be easy to read like Spanish? If your answer is yes, then you're going to like to learn how to speak English using the NEEPO method.
Speak English With NEEPO transforms confusing traditional English into NEEPO (New English Phonetic Orthography) now making English easy to read, therefore easy to speak for the very first time in history.
Once you learn the NEEPO method of spelling English, which is spelling words with the NEEPO symbols that represent the 36 sounds and 9 combination sounds of English, you will now be able to form words that are 100% regular and consistent making it possible for you to read English exactly the way it is spoken.
With Speak English With NEEPO, you will start speaking English correctly from day one by reading the letters or symbols to speak the 36 sounds and 9 combination sounds and then reading pure English words, then reading sentences in pure English the correct way with little or no accent.
Do I need to study the grammar rules of the English language while taking this e-course?
No. The best part of learning how to speak English with this eLearning course is that you are learning how to speak English correctly and fluently without having to learn all the grammar and punctuation rules.
Will Speak English With NEEPO confuse learners in regards to correct spelling of traditional English?
In case studies, NEEPO has been shown to help learners transition to the reading and spelling of traditional English. In no way has it ever shown that it confuses learners. Traditional English is displayed beside the NEEPO text for easy reference and association. Besides, we have the traditional English right along side the NEEPO text for association purposes so that you can see the reason why you need NEEPO to speak, read and spell the English language.
Is the NEEPO methodology similar to other phonetic methodologies, such as the International Phonetic Alphabet, that are available and used in the teaching of English speaking?
No, not at all. It is a totally new and unique phonetic method that is entirely different from all other phonetic methodologies used in the teaching of English speaking. First of all, it is 100% regular and consistent in its use and application. It uses only the pure English alphabet, and there are no confusing symbols. It is designed for educational purposes for ages 7 to adult. (5 yr. olds, if computer literate should have no problem using the software).
